Hagel Spars With China Over Territorial Disputes
U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Saturday China’s aggressive moves to claim jurisdiction over land and sky in the Asia-Pacific risk undermining peace and security in the region and beyond. Beijing scoffed at the “groundless” charges. Hagel told an international security conference that the United States “will not look the other way” when China and others try to restrict navigation or ignore international rules and standards. China’s territorial claims in the South China Sea are destabilizing the region, he said, adding that Beijing’s failure to resolve such disputes threatens East Asia’s long-term progress.
